Caroline's Spine — Forget lyrics

As I wander through this house
Where my man became a mouse
I can see how we started so innocently.
As I agonize my way through another yesterday
I still don't know how you could have sunk so low

You wouldn't follow me with the rest of them
Now I'm by myself.
You wouldn't protect me from the rest of them
I'm beside myself and I'm trying to forget...

As I wrap up the things we shared
I try to convince myself I never cared
Yet I feel that we were the only real thing.
When I think back to when we were one
Then you accuse me of things I never could've done
And you never confessed of looking for excuses.

You wouldn't follow me with the rest of them
Now I'm by myself.
You wouldn't protect me from the rest of them
I'm beside myself and I'm trying to forget...

So I retreat to my family
Who showed you endless generosity and yes,
I hear a sigh of disbelief.
And I will go on with my life, court another,
Maybe gain a wife and i'll try to outgrow
Just going through the motions.

You wouldn't follow me with the rest of them
Now I'm by myself
You will alwasy be a step ahead in the back of my head
While I'm trying to forget
I'm trying to forget you...
